Do you teach with films or media clips? Do you have questions about selecting and ensuring that your students have access to these materials? Do you wonder why the Library doesn’t subscribe to Netflix, or how UD Capture and licensed media can coexist? You are not alone!
Viewing a thoughtfully selected film or media clip invites students to learn, ask questions, grapple with and discuss course content. While many forms of film and video are simple to find online, they may not be high quality or stable and reliable throughout the semester — or they may not exist in an online format at all. It can be a challenge to ensure your students can access the videos you select – the evolving media landscape provides as many pitfalls as it does opportunities.
Join librarians, technology support professionals and others who regularly teach with films and media for a discussion of this complex media ecosystem. Expect to discuss problems you encounter, strategies for success, and how the campus community can support your students’ curricular needs and help you approach media in a copyright-conscious way.
Lunch will be provided.
